3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear orange-yellow with small off-white head that goes very quickly.
Light aroma of pie spice and ginger, modest pumpkin. Taste is light malt, sweet cereal, corn, pumpkin, a bit of spice.
Definite sweetness is less pronounced than it might be, while light body with sprightly carbonation makes it seem more like a soda. The effect is offbeat, OK for a session, but there are better alternatives.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s labeled as KBC Pumpkin Ale. Bright brassy gold color with a small rocky beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest. Tangy bready malt flavor has all the obligatory pumpkin pie spice flavors. Light bodied and indistinguishable from rest of the glut of Pumpkin brews.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s Westport. Pours orange with very little white head. Doesn’t leave a lot of lacing in the glass. has kind of an artificial nutmeg note on the nose. tastes like bottled spices on the tongue. finished clean. Doesn’t seem like a very good version of the style.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at a co-workers house, thanks for the opportunity, I think.
Big sweet brown sugar with plenty of pie spices and little else beer like from this bottle. I guess on the plus side the spices surely drowned out and diacetyl that was probably in this.

12oz bottle to tulip glass. Pours clear gold, soda ring head. Aroma of old malts, dusty pumpkin. Taste is watered down pumpkin soda. Mouthfeel is ultra light, with tons of carb. This beer sucks. Would rather drink pumpkin pie and Bud Light in a blender.
